> The OpenDev and OpenStack teams have no plans to continue mirroring these projects to Github; primarily because we don't have a corresponding Github organization to put them in. However, teams can easily set up a mirror to any location they like on Github: http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/openstack-discuss/2019-April/005007.html
> The remaining question is what to do with the stale repos in the OpenStack organization on Github. Right now, we plan to just archive them. This means that the repository will be read-only, with a banner at the top saying it's archived. If a project owner wants to transfer the project to another Github organization, we can unarchive the project to do so, and they can maintain the mirroring via Zuul.
